“Karen is the ultimate professional. Very focused on every detail. She does extensive research to price a property for sale and uses all tools available during the preview and showing process. I was really impressed at how she handled the negotiation process on our first contract offer. A counter offer was necessary with some adjustments to certain contract provisions. She seemed to anticipate what the other party was willing to accept and finally all of our changes were adopted by the prospective buyer. Also Karen is good at navigating all the property tests and inspections such as well, septic, radon and other various inspections involved with a country property. Her professionalism is evident from the time of listing thru to the final settlement.”

“Karen was excellent to work with. She helped stage our house, followed up with each potential buyer and got us the price we wanted for our house. Her attention to detail and knowledge of the procedures was very helpful. We highly recommend Karen.”
- K. Northcott - Ashburn, VA
“Karen was great. She worked with us to get the house in perfect order (well she didn't come over and paint but she did point out what was needed :-) ). The first buyer that walked through put in the offer that we accepted. It was for full asking price and the buyer was flexible to our close date request. Karen walked us through the possibilities of not finding the perfect buyer if we wanted to hold out for more money. She didn't pressure us to accept - it was the right buyer, the right price and we couldn't be more pleased.”

“Karen was wonderful! She came on time, was open to my suggestions, had great people skills, produced the booklet in color advertizing my home with many details and photos in a few hours and my home sold in three days!! Being a widow, she gave me confidence to do this sale event with her professional help! I would suggest her name to all my friends looking to sell. “
